In electron micrographs, the plasma membrane at the surface of a cell is about 8 m# thick (16) and has a triple-layered structure consisting of two dark layers separated by a light layer. Recent studies suggest that, in the majority of tissues, the plasma membranes of adjacent cells arc separated by a distance of not less than 15 to 20 m# (15), this(More)
